It’s been almost exactly a year since I shared how I like to use Google Forms as a rubric during speaking assessments in class. Since then, I’ve received several questions about it! I tried to explain as best as I could, but this past week we gave speaking assessments in Spanish 2 so I thought I’d take a few quick minutes to screencast and explain the rubric and how the procedure works for me.
Please click here to watch the video! I really hope it’s helpful in understanding the process.
A few important notes:
- As I’m making the shift to more TPRS / Comprehensible Input in my Spanish I classes, there will be a lot less of these assessments in their levels. In fact..I’m not positive if they’ll have any formal speaking assessments at all. I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!
- My Spanish 2 classes are continuing with a more traditional style of learning at this point. (baby steps!) They will have mini speaking assessments like this throughout the year.
Do you currently use speaking assessments in your classroom? What does the process look like for you?
